Safeguarding Adult Reviews & How to Make a Referral
Lewisham Safeguarding Adults Board (LSAB) will arrange a Safeguarding Adult Review (SAR) when an adult in Lewisham dies as a result of abuse or neglect, whether known or suspected, and there is concern that partner agencies could have worked more effectively to protect the adult.
We will also arrange a SAR if an adult in Lewisham has not died, but the LSAB knows or suspects that the adult has experienced serious abuse or neglect.
We are also free to arrange for a SAR in any other situations involving an adult in Lewisham with needs for care and support.
The Department of Health's Safeguarding Care and Support Statutory Guidance guides the reviews we carry out.
Should the LSAB carry out a review we have a Safeguarding Adult Review Framework that we work to, which explains in detail what you can expect us to undertake for the Lewisham Community.
